Mighty Miniatures and Modern Jewels in Spring Popup at Minka

Tacoma artist and arts promoter Lisa Kinoshita just sent me this announcement. It's a one-day-only showing, so mark your calendar and plan to get to Minka.

It's true: the best (and most irresistibly peculiar) things come in small packages! Tacoma-based artist Devon Urquhart makes fabulous, miniature paintings and dioramas smaller than a slice of bread but action packed. Meet the artist at MINKA on April 28, 2-5:30, and enter her tiny universe of laid-back, beer drinking locusts, astronauts tethered to ovaries, and more! You might even go home with a ceramic Boob Cup...

Designer Regina Chang sells her jewels from Hong Kong to Seattle to L.A., and on April 28, 2-5:30 she'll be at MINKA! Please join us and meet the artist - well-known for her juicy-colored natural stones set off with beautiful hammered metals! You know the drill - simple top, plain neckline to show off those amazing necklaces.

Also showing on 4/28: new prints by San Antonio artist, Guy Hundere, colorful abstracts based on algorithms that appear to mirror the natural world.

MINKA is located at 821 Pacific Ave. in Tacoma's Theater District. Hours: Friday 12-5, Saturday 11-5 and by appointment. STARTING IN MAY, we will also be open Thursdays 12-5. Phone: 253.961.5220. Also on April 28, meet Paula Shields, MINKA's new co-owner with Lisa Kinoshita. New art, furnishings and collectibles are arriving weekly! MINKA is Japanese for, "house of the people".
